With only 81 days until the release of the next Star Wars film, Episode VII, people are getting an excited and the rumors are starting to fly. One rumor in particular is getting the loudest minority all up in arms: Hayden Christensen maybe returning to the Star Wars series in the new movies. To quote Obi-Wan to match the internet’s overblown reaction to the rumor: “I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror-“. People, really, this is a non-issue issue. Hayden Christensen’s role of Anakin Skywalker (pre Darth Vader) wasn’t the best, but it was far from the worst. Like the prequel movies themselves, Anakin was the origin story of Darth Vader they got, not the one they wanted. But people, he couldn’t be born force choking noobs and terrorizing the galaxy right out he gate. There had to be a reason why he was so malicious and almost inhuman inside and out in the original movies. The prequels did a good job not only showing how messed up Anakin life is and was (slave, mother was a slave, used by Jedi, used by Sith, in love but wasn’t allow in the order, hid his marriage, manipulated emotionally to do horrible things, turned into a cyborg, then died), but also a perfect example of how the road to hades is paved on good intentions. So people, whether the rumors are true or not, please let this non-issue issue go – it’s really not worth all the hate.
